UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It's a battery used to power a PC or a server to avoid the loss of data if the main power supply fails for some reason or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator practically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power supply and to guarantee the consistent functioning of all the machines located there. Because the UPS operates all the time, it provides the required power for the machines to remain up and running until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is a must for any data center or provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in the event of a power surge or outage, as it offers them plenty of time to react until the issue is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
